Jeremy Swayman Enjoyed Playing In ‘Fun Atmosphere’ Of Bruins-Penguins

'Those are crucial points and it was a tight game all the way through'

Jeremy Swayman has not yet experienced postseason hockey, but he knows a playoff atmosphere when he’s playing in one.

The Bruins goalie stopped 28 of 29 shots in Boston’s 1-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon at PPG Paints Arena. Swayman has shown poise and patience during his brief stint in the NHL, and always seems to say the right things even after a loss.

That trend continued Sunday when asked if the game felt like what he thought a playoff game would.

“Yeah. That was a fun atmosphere to play in,” Swayman said on a postgame video conference. “Those are crucial points and it was a tight game all the way through. It’s what we’re gonna expect in a couple weeks. It was a fun game to be apart of, but disappointed we didn’t come out with two points.”

Swayman only is worried about one thing for the Bruins, though.

“All I care about is helping the team win. If I can do that at the end of the day I’ll be able look at myself in the mirror. Again, all I wanna do is help this team win. It’s a fun locker room to be apart of, it really is. I’m just really grateful for the experience.”

The Penguins took over first place in the East Division with the win. The Bruins are holding on to the fourth and final playoff spot just three points behind the New York Islanders, and four points ahead of the New York Rangers.
